Happy pumpkins – Halloween party food

Preparation time: | Servings: 6

While I was shopping a few weeks ago, I came across candy eyeballs and I thought that I might use them to make some funny Halloween party food. At that time, I had no idea yet what I was going to make with them... And then, one day, my daughter was not in such a great mood, so to cheer her up a bit, I decided to make something cute for her dessert. I didn't have much time, so it needed to be easy and quick. I opened the fridge, and I saw a cantaloupe melon staring at me. Of course, why not make some funny melon shapes, a healthy and easy dessert, ready in few minutes. And then I remembered the candy eyeballs I had in my cupboard. There were too many to eat them all during the Halloween party, so I used a few to make these happy pumpkin faces. You should have seen my daughter's face! She LOVED it! Happy pumpkins - Halloween party food ideas title


  • 1-2 slices of cantaloupe  melon
  • melted chocolate
  • 12 candy eyeballs
  • 6 toothpicks


Supplies I used



Step1 Cut a slice of cantaloupe melon. It should be as thick as the cookie cutter you will use. Cut pumpkin shapes from the melon slice, you may also use the green part, just under the melon skin, just to add some more color to the little pumpkins.Happy pumpkins - Halloween party food ideas step1
Step2 Use a knife to make two grooves along each melon pumpkin. Use the juice to fix the candy eyeballs. Draw the mouth with the melted chocolate. Mount each melon pumpkin on the toothpick. For the presentation, I have used a green picket fence planter box that had already a floral foam inside, so it was a great base for these happy pumpkin faces:) Enjoy!
